After two matches against Lille and PSV in which it seemed a bit more difficult for Ajax, the team from Amsterdam qualified for the final of the KNVB cup on Wednesday evening without too much trouble. In Friesland sc Heerenveen was defeated 3-0. “I’ve seen a hungry Ajax”, trainer Erik ten Hag showed himself satisfied.
“We have to maintain that. The aim is to remain present in all competitions.”
Davy Klaassen, the maker of the opening goal, also saw a strong Ajax on the ball. “We controlled the whole game. We didn’t let them come into the counter with the fast players they have. I never had the feeling that we wouldn’t win.”
With a big lead in the competition, a national cup final and an eighth final in the Europa League in prospect, it could be a very good season for the team from Amsterdam. “We are on the right track, but in the end you want to win things, otherwise it will not be a good season. We are going for three prizes, but it will certainly not be easy and will happen automatically”, Klaassen said.
